Nightdive Studios announced today that their remaster of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will be releasing on PC March 16.
Turok 2 originally released for the Nintendo 64 in 1998, and went on to sell over one million copies. Nightdive Studios released the remaster of the original Turok on PC in 2015, and after a long period of silence due to licensing issues, is finally ready to release the game.
This remaster adds a new weapon, The Cerebral Bore, and a multiplayer game mode called Last Turok Standing. You can check out a full list of features below, courtesy of the game’s Steam Page:
- Fight your way through 35 different types of enemies with bouncing bellies, blinking eyes, stretching tentacles and snapping jaws. From Prehistoric Raptors, to evolved Flesh Eaters, to your final battle with the Mother of all beasts— you’ll want to defeat all of them!
- Enemies are now intelligent! They’re smart enough to attack in groups, to flee when they are outgunned, and to take cover during a firefight.
- Enemies now flinch and spasm differently depending on which body part you hit.
- Conquer 6 engrossing Quest Levels including the Port of Adia, the Death Marches and the Lair of the Blind Ones.

Stephen Kick, CEO and Founder of Nightdive Studios, had the following to say about the Turok 2: Seeds of Evil remaster:
“Turok 2: Seeds of Evil does more than just continue the series. From the moment that a player first begins their quest in the Port of Adia, they will face a whole new series of challenges and puzzles to solve. Players will also get to use a whole new series of weapons to overcome these challenges. And best of all, players will get to use these weapons against their friends in multiplayer mode!”
